About iHOPE, a Recovery Community Organization

iHOPE, Inc. is a Recovery Community Organization (RCO) that exists to serve Middle Georgia with effective peer-to-peer recovery resources. As a peer-focused organization, iHope connects people in recovery to support groups, volunteer opportunities, employment opportunities, and more. 

The community vision for iHOPE began in 2015 during a Recovery Symposium in Houston County. Our focused conversations at the Symposium fostered engagement, collaboration, and the founding of iHOPE. Today, the Advisory Team and Board of Directors continue our recovery movement by building peer/ally leadership and recovery partnerships that keep people well in our communities.
